When should I buy travel insurance?

When is travel insurance worth the added expense? I outline a few instances when you should consider buying a policy in my new USA Today video segment. By the way, my weekly live broadcast is on hiatus until I can find a fast enough Internet connection to accommodate the bandwidth requirements. (Warning: this video starts when you upload the page, and there isn’t a thing I can do to stop it. Yet it is worth watching, so please click on it.)
